Abstract: An analysis is given for the medium-rise building with fixed base and other with base isolation device. The device hereby used for base isolation is Fiber-reinforced Elastomeric Isolator (FREI). The Fiber-reinforced Elastomeric Isolator is an isolator which uses fiber fabric material instead of steel thin plates. The main purpose of using FREI is to analyze the seismic response of medium-rise RCC frame building. As in past many research work have been carried out for low-rise building. Therefore, in this paper (G+4), (G+6), (G+8) Storey building are taken for study and analysis has been demonstrated using commercial software ETABS v17. The design of Fiber Reinforced Elastomeric Isolators is broadly based on the guidelines of ASCE 7-10. The response spectrum analysis of different storey are based on Indian Design Standard. In addition to the design of FREI, a comparison between fixed based and base isolated RCC frame building has been carried out in the form of time period, displacement, drift at various load combination. The above parameter is taken to check whether it can withstand the loads and seismic forces without any failure.
